BT Exchange to Home is 79.8Mb - Home to Laptop is 75.2Mb

Why am I not getting the 79.8Mb? I have turned off the WiFi on my BT Home Hub 3 Type A and my laptop that is very fast is the only one plugged into the Hubs Ethernet port 1.

Turning off the wireless settings wont free up the bit of you Infinity that's available as public wifi. Even if you opt out of the free wifi you wont get all the bandwidth to use.

The 79.8 mb is your maximum attainable speed your line can support you will never achieve that the 75.2mb you are getting at your laptop is correct and is an excellent connection nothing is wrong just enjoy it

why is everyone's profile being limited to 77.43mb?

What ever these guys say, I simply don't believe it anymore. False information, and they keep repeating each other.
